    Excellent! Brilliant, bright happy tunes like 'I only hope' and 'This is the day', beautiful ballads like 'Every morning' and the haunting 'Pretty eyes', the Cranberries back doing what they do best.

    ive always been a huge cranberries fan, ever since the first album. this one is better than 'bury the hatchet' i guess. i like the melodies more. it sounds simpler too, closer to heart. i like wake up, every morning, and of course analyse. the cranberries rocks!!! i cnt wait for the next album.

    Wake Up... is the set of inspired anthems they needed to deliver in '96. [Oct/Nov 2001, p.103]
  2. The band sounds strong but derivative of its own best work.
  3. It's official: Dolores O'Riordan is rock's most vapid lyricist. [26 Oct 2001, p.125]
